I can't imagine what is causing it, but for some reason over the past week my computer is refusing to load google, yahoo, altavista and some other search engines though metasearch.com and msnsearch just seem to work fine and dandy (which is not the way around I want it as they are awful). The web pages say they are connecting but then time out and pressing wait doesn't do any difference. I've ran Spy Sweeper and Avast! on full sweep and haven't found any spyware or viruses in there at all.
It is also happening with my vision2learn.com course web page as well, which is extremely annoying as I need it to do my online course!

If anyone has any ideas I would be most appreciative as it is driving me nuts!
